    General Comment"Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" was written by Dee Dee about his early glue-sniffing days. Dee Dee said in the Gabba Gabba Hey book in 1981: "When we wrote that song...it was like an obvious joke because no-one we know sniffs glue, 'cause that is the most uncool thing you could possibly do." The song was inspired musically by "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by the Stooges, with the line "Now I wanna/Be your dog." The Ramones used the "now I wanna" or the opposite "I don't wanna" on many of their earliest songs.

    General Commenti think they were being sarcastic or something, as it reads in the little booklet that came with "Ramones: Anthology (Hey Ho Let's Go!)": "...in London. We played there for the first time on July 4, 1976, while in America they were celebrating the Bicentennial. Outside The Round House during sound check, these cool-looking guys were hanging around. They said they were a band calling themselves The Clash, but that they were still just rehearsing and didn't feel they were virtuosic enough to play in public. "Are you kidding?" said Johnny. "I hope you're coming tonight. We're lousy. We can't play. If you wait until you can play, you'll be too old to get up there. We stink, really. But it's great." The house was sold out, the kids went crazy, there were riots in the streets, and the headline of England's leading daily tabloid that day was "Glue Sniff Shocker," a reference to the lower-class drug trash from New York that was celebrating July 4th in the motherland. "Shit, "said Dee Dee. "It's a good thing we split from these assholes 200 years ago. I hope they really don't think we sniff glue. I quit when I was eight."

    General CommentI love it when people tell me that all 'real' punk is political. I always tell them that I love the political message in this song.

    General CommentWas'nt there a punk publication out around 1977 called sniffin glue?? maybe it has vague references to that? not sure...

    Perhaps there was slut all to do back in the day and they thought gettin blazed outta their skulls on a cheap high would make life seem more fun... At least it would give them sumfin ta do for a while...
